Praise God

Praise God

Praise God for the stretched out holiday
This time of year provides
The gathering together with our blessed loved ones
The sharing of gifts and gaiety
The catching up of news past and present
The love shown between our daughters and our sons

So much have we to be thankful for
In our pause of true reflection
God you have been so good to me
To watch the children's children play
And think "Wow! Time sure flies!"
And then to think upon eternity

What direction will each one go
In the choices of their lives
How much do they really think of God
We know that in each heart
Although unto us is hidden
What value do they give to God's Word

I pray dear Father orchestrate
The means whereby they learn
That everything exists because of You
And find the treasure chest of faith
That can change a sinful heart
And send their praises God
Back unto you....praise God!

About the Poet
I came to know the Lord as my personal Saviour in January of 1972. I was married on Oct 21,1966 to my wife Linda who also loves the Lord. We have ten children and now twenty-four grand children. In Aug 2012 we got the announcement of the birth of our first GREAT grand child (a baby girl). I was thrilled to find others of like precious faith and belief in Jesus Christ. Hallelujah! What a Savior! I am presently living in Champion, Alberta, Canada but we are originally from Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario, Canada. That is where the poem Canadian Tribute to America was birthed. One Sunday as I walked across the city on my way to church I came to the top of a hill and looked across at Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan. After watching the events of the Sept 11 tragedy it was weighing on my heart and mind and the Lord gave me these words. We came to Calgary and when my oldest daughter saw this poem she said, �Dad, what�s this?� and I said a poem and she replied �Dad, that�s not a poem , that�s a song� and she then went to the piano and began to sing and play it. The result of which turned into a song entitled, A Canadian Tribute to America which she recorded on CD. garyjamessmith2005@yahoo.ca
